Coinbase’s e-commerce platform has begun accepting dogecoin payments.
It will add fuel to the resurgent memecoin’s bid for crypto payments. Coinbase Commerce allows online merchants to accept cryptocurrencies.
This year, billionaire Mark Cuban began taking dogecoin for Dallas Mavericks merch. Elon Musk is also accepting dogecoin as launch payment on an upcoming SpaceX mission.
